Feeling the educational and cultural lagging of Gudalur and Pandalur taluks, Fathima Matha Church, Kayyunni decided to establish an educational institution. With the blessings of the founder Patron Mar Jacob Thoomkuzhy, Fr. Mathew Puthenparambil, a visionary and a farsighted priest met the necessary requirements and the new school began to function from June 1, 1985. Later, when the parish found it
difficult to run the school, in 1995 the parish handed over the school to the Diocese of Mananthavady. The diocese entrusted the school to the trust named Nilgiri Education Trust.
